It’s only mid-September and we are more than halfway through harvest at Waits-Mast Family Cellars. In addition to being in constant communication with our growers and our wine making facility about pick logistics, we’ve also been out doing tasting appointments, pouring at events, and scrambling to buy more barrels to hold our increasingly growing production (we plan to surpass 500 cases this year!). Our first harvest of 2014 was at Wentzel Vineyard in Anderson Valley on September 4. We greeted grower Roland Wentzel when he delivered the fruit to the winery in San Francisco that evening (after braving city traffic jams) and then raced home to pack for a trip up to Anderson Valley and Mendocino the following day.

As if two tastings in a week wasn’t enough for us, we’re pretty excited to round out our trio of pinot pours by offering samples of our Waits-Mast wine during a book event in San Francisco this Saturday, April 4th to celebrate the publication of Passion for Pinot, a beautifully photographed book focusing entirely on American Pinot Noir.
Author Jordan MacKay and photographer Robert Holmes will be discussing their book and we’ll be pouring our 2007 Pinot Noir from Wentzel Vineyard and our 2007 Pinot Noir from La Encantada Vineyard to set the mood.
